Help with new CPU & Motherboard compatibility.
Jun 4, 2012, 6:29 PM
Hello, I have a ECS Elite Group H61H2-M2 motherboard
"High performance ECS Motherboard H61H2-M2 supporting latest socket LGA 1155 Intel® 2nd Generation Core™ i7 / i5 / i3 Processors"
On the website
They have a CPU supported list which includes 3rd Gen CPU's Will these work in a 2nd gen?
I was thinking about buying Intel 3rd Generation Core i7-3770K CPU (4 x 3.50GHz, Ivy Bridge, Socket 1155, 8Mb L3 Cache, Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0)
Any help will be great thanks.

as far as i know, Sandy Bridge boards support Ivy Bridge processors. furthermore, the i7-3770K is listed in the cpu support list of your board. guess you'll need to flash bios though.
